What Vegans Eat – Day 1376

Breakfast: It’s a new day. With my colonoscopy behind me (is that a pun?) I made us a celebratory breakfast. Every day should be a celebration! I made Cornmeal Pancakes, an old favorite, with Blueberry Coulis. Gary prepared a fresh batch of Apricot Butter and frothed the Soy Milk for our Chai Tea.   Green…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1375

Breakfast: My day began at 4am. It was necessary to get up this early to complete my colonoscopy prep. Every 15 minutes I was to drink 8 ounces of the remaining half gallon of Golytely solution. Every glass was harder to get down and occasionally some wouldn’t go, it would come right back up and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1374

Breakfast: Tomorrow I am having a colonoscopy. That means today I prep with clear liquids. I was allowed to have a low fiber breakfast. The nurses suggest milk, white toast and butter and dairy yogurt, all foods that I consider very unhealthy and not vegan. I decided to mash some Silken Tofu and drizzle a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1372

Breakfast: As you may know, I am not an early person. Today came too soon. I had to leave at 8am the latest to get to the Werkit 2018 Women’s Podcast Festival at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens. There is no direct public transportation to this location so I splurged and took a Lyft…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1371

Breakfast: Everyday should start with Teeccino, Soy Foam and Cinnamon. Mm.   Gary’s at his Monday acting class at HB Studio. I am recovering from a hectic week. I ate a Sweet Potato for breakfast. I thought I would have two but one was enough.   Lunch: I hadn’t seen my mom in over a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1368

Breakfast: Today we sit and wait as the person I have accompanied to MD Anderson Hospital in Houston will have surgery. We arrived before 8am. Everything has gone well for the most part so far. I love the doctors – all trim, smart upbeat women. The staff is responsive and helpful. Another surgeon had been…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1366

Breakfast: I am flying to Houston today on a five-day trip. After working the elections yesterday I was exhausted this morning but I managed to get myself together with Gary’s help and get to the subway and bus to the airport. Gary made me pack yesterday’s leftovers. I resisted and he insisted. I’m glad. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1365

Breakfast: Today is Election Day and I am working as a table inspector at our local polling site. I got up at 4am and reported to work at 5am. Gary prepared a container of Soaked Oats with Blueberries, Pears, Flax Seeds for me to take when I was ready to eat. I prepared a bottle…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1364

Breakfast: Gary had his acting class today. I used the time alone to prerecord my radio show for tomorrow, Election Day where I will be working at the polls from 5am to 10pm. When I got hungry I ate the remaining Potatoes and Spinach from last night’s late meal.   I was hungry a about…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1363

What Vegans Eat – Day 1362

What Vegans Eat – Day 1360

Breakfast: When we were in California I had tried to make Buckwheat Crepes for our friends John and Deo. Deo only had toasted Buckwheat Groats and I quickly learned they would not work! When at home I make a Buckwheat Flour from raw Buckwheat, not toasted and it makes all the difference. I couldn’t wait…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1357

Breakfast: We were leaving John and Deo’s home this morning. Deo prepared a large Berry Smoothie for us to go. I took it along with the message at the entrance of their home, “May Peace Prevail on Earth”. It’s a good thing to think about while sipping.   Gary and I had a meeting in…
